Thanks a lot Adam for the clarification.
Now that Jessie is in LTS and that jessie-updates/ is gone, does this
also mean there won't be any other updates to tzdata, clamav, or
similar (timely dependent's) packages ?
Or if still updated, where does we got them from ? I guess it's not
from security updates ?
